Drunk, Shirtless Cop Points Gun at Convenience Store Clerk During Three AM Visit

Screen Shot 2013-08-01 at 9.46.30 AM“Hey! No shirts, no service… Oh.”

One of two drunk, shirtless, and armed sheriff’s deputies equipped with bullet-proof vests who came wandering into a convenience store at three in the morning decided to point his pistol twice at the clerk working the desk. The 23 year-old deputy was already on probation ten months into his job. He has since been arrested and charged with aggravated assault. Inexplicably, he has since been released by the judge into “pre-trial services.” Be sure to ask for the same if you’re drunk and/or stupid enough to pull this kind of stunt.

    where are the GOOD police???? so many cops are dumb as rocks

    • Rex Vestri

      “Good police” is an oxymoron.

      • gustave courbet

        Not true. Good police don’t make headlines when they perform their jobs with competency and ethical judgement. That said, as the enforcers of state power, cops need to be held to the highest standard, because their power and the potential for its abuse are so great.

          Perform their jobs? You mean their job of enforcing the law regarding victimless drug crimes, stocking the prison-industrial complex with a proportionally-larger population of non-whites, constantly levying fines to meet endless quotas to further the state-extraction mechanism, and lawfully using ‘non-lethal’ force to taze and otherwise subdue everyone from children to the elderly…among many other lawful activities? Even well-intentioned cops are put in a position to push forward an unjust system, because that’s the nature of the system of law. It’s written by thieves and cowards, and the buck is passed to the lower classes of enforces to carry out their dirty work.

          If you begin to accept the basic assumption that law-makers are puppets for a larger ponzi-scheme economy run by the issuers of fiat currency, the current state of affairs begins to make sense. If,on the other hand, you believe abstract concepts, like law and human rights, will be honoured by the ‘law’ enforcers as the money masters tighten their grip on society by making money even more scarce than it already is, then god bless you, son.

            Save your argument for someone who disagrees with you. You hit all the salient points, and I couldn’t have written it better myself. I was reacting to the simplistic cop = bad statement. Reactionary rhetoric like “all cops are bad” is transparently inaccurate and intellectually lazy, whether it comes from someone who’s sentiment I agree with or from a pro-corporatist true believer.

          • Rhoid Rager

            Fair enough. I guess I missed the nuance.

          There are good people who are cops, but the bad cops get away with this stuff because the “good cops” don’t speak up. They are complicit.

          • Rhoid Rager

            No organizations like rats. They’d get killed, or worse, if they spoke up. If good cops were smart, they’d just resign and go live the quiet life somewhere–making up for their complicity with numerous acts of kindness to strangers.

    Shows any idiot can become a cop, they are no better than anyone else . The scarily part is they can usually do anything they want and get by with it. Good thing there was a camera [cops don't like camera's]. http://slog.thestranger.com/slog/archives/2013/07/31/police-threatened-to-arrest-me-for-taking-their-photo-last-night . And what about the one where they shot the mans dog because he was taking video of them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Mum5iJMlyk&list=FLHXgeIc8khQ7eci6ScppEGQ
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are good honest cops out there. Its the power hungry ones who let the power go to their heads that are a danger. Some times the only difference between a criminal and a cop is the badge.

  • PAUL WHALEY

    Good ! its about time they start firing and jailing dirty cops. The police want to put everyone behind bars , So start putting your own there too.

  • Rhoid Rager

    In the end, they’ll have to atone, because what’s coming they brought upon themselves.

  • InAwe

    hehe and there is an ad asking us to donate money to cops just below this article

  • Wade Dewell

    it shows police are above the law. i hate police they are the scum of the earth. they only serve and protect the 1 percent and unconstitutional draconian unjust laws
